Actually this collectd instance acts both as a client, in the sense that 
it generates data for its own filesystem, memory, processes, etc. and as 
a server, in the sense that the rrdtool plugin is loaded and writes RRD 
files with its own values but also with values from other remote 
collectd instances.

I agree with you that, on principle, the notifications are meant to be 
client-side, but as far as I can see I fall within this case.
